True to his name, Dr Disrespect has said that his upcoming AAA title is better looking than the new Call Of Duty.
YouTube streamer, and now game developer, Dr Disrespect is welll known for his Call Of Duty, Fortnite, and competitive gaming streams. Building up his audience originally on Twitch, he moved to YouTube after being banned for still undisclosed reasons.
During one of his recent streams, he took shots at the new Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, due out this year. Developed by Infinity Ward, Disrespect stated that the game his studio, Midnight Society, is making looks far better even though nobody else has seen it.
The game is set to be a battle royale and has no name attached to it right now. It’ll run on Unreal Engine 5, which to be fair, does give it an immediate advantage.
Disrespect has recently been complaining about how Activision’s social media and influencer teams abandoned him after his banning from Twitch. This was presumably due to the nature of the ban but Disrespect said he ‘took it personally’.
Speaking about the Modern Warfare 2 reveal from the Summer Games Fest, he said:
‘I could take a screenshot of our game right now, in-engine, and I don’t think anything from there could match that screenshot.’
Midnight Society is currently headed up by ex-Call Of Duty creative strategist Robert Bowling, who also co-founded the studio with the streamer. Bowling is known for his username ‘fourzerotwo’ and before joining Midnight Society was working on a multiplayer game called Human Element at Robotoki.
Human Element was shelved after a publishing deal fell through and the studio was forced to close down in 2015. However, they did manage to publish a small mobile game and launch a failed Kickstarter before the closure.
Also at the studio are former Call Of Duty and Halo developers, including Halo Infinite’s sandbox designer and art director.
Without any kind of gameplay to show, the studio has already begun planning an in-game trading system and is going to be utilising the blockchain to do so.
Despite all the complaints, Dr Disrespect still frequently plays Call Of Duty and Warzone on his streams.
